Retired full-time traveler. Minimalist (my backpack & carry-on contain all the "stuff" I own). I journey to meet new friends, try foods, listen to music, dance. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  • Montevideo

    Driving looks and feels dangerous. It isn't. It's just scary to start (and I've got over a million miles in a truck across North America). That's probably why the 'dangerous' reviews. Was surprised to find EVERY time something happened, like a car door randomly opening in front of you or sudden lane disappearance, the drivers in the lane you needed made space. Drivers have exceptional road awareness. It's just that it's scary doing 75 km/h in a bumper to bumper traffic jam. Being a pedestrian is

  • Chania

    From 2015 to 2019 I have lived in Chania. There were not many expats, mainly older brithisn expats. Some artists, writers etc... Organic shops just starting ,spiritual community just starting.. Few scattered ppl across the west of Crete. It has apparently started to change now, more and more expats coming, I see more and larger FB nomad groups.. back then there was absolutely nothing of such kind. I had tried to create community through couchsurfing back then and met a few interesting people. H

  • Antalya

    Pros: 1) Amazing coworking space (Coworking Antalya) with lots of events and cool people and the best outdoor working terrace ever (proper desk chairs + plug sockets + good wifi). 2) Good value activities e.g. rafting for 20euros. 3) Local women very attractive and can sometimes be friendly Cons: 1) Not particularly cheap in nice restuarants, basically London/Lisbon prices. 2) Maybe too hot for some (I like the heat personally) 3) Alcohol expensive I would recommend doing a month.

  • Naples

    I was in Neapol recently, the city has a lot of potential, the weather is nice, it is not far away from very nice places like Capri or Ischia. However, the city itself is chaotic, dirty, no traffic rules, I felt more like in SE Asia than in Western Europe. There is not much going on in the city, you can walk the main stuff in half a day. I do not recommend to stay here short term, definitely not long term. Use the airport and then go to some charming village which there are plenty in this part o

  • Miami

    I guess if you're a nomad this doesn't matter much, but the long-term job pickings here are slim and among the most underpaid for a US city. There seems to be a tacit rent floor that means you won't find a good deal on housing. A lot of people don't seem very invested in their interpersonal relationships here since their ties to the area are often transient.

  • Buenos Aires

    Great city! Buenos Aires feels like a European capital located in Latin America (at roughly half the cost). Lots of cafes, restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, and etc. Uber and ride-share apps are very responsive & inexpensive here, but they are also not the greatest cars. The public transportation is also good. The language exchange events here are the best I have seen, heard of, or been to for those who are trying to learn languages or network with a wide variety of locals and internationals. O
